r.i.p. Zim Ngqawana

The great South African saxophone player Zim Ngqawana died Monday evening in Johannesburg, after suffering a stroke in the afternoon.

Check out this live video from the Guinness Jazz Festival or check out this beautiful tune from one of his albums.

What a huge loss.

How sad - I only knew one of his albums but I very much enjoy that one.
